Meet Samantha Joyce. Bright, articulate and hard-working, Sammy is a political aide to die for. Seventy-hour working weeks? No problem. Conniving hacks? Handled. The very model of efficiency, Sammy takes the cut-throat world of Washington in her stride.

But lurking beneath this highly-professional veneer is another Sammy. A caffeine and cosmopolitan fuelled Sammy who's prone to flights of highly-imaginative fancy. A Sammy who's not above begging her Japanese Fighting Fish not to commit hara kiri. A Sammy who's just met Aaron Driver, a speechwriter who has one significant flaw: he works for her boss's biggest rival.

None of this is anything to worry about. Ordinarily. But when you're trying to run a national political campaign whilst being beleaguered by scheming journos and treacherous colleagues, and starting what seems to be a very exciting relationship, surely something's got to give?

From Publishers Weekly

12 July 2004 – This first novel by Al Gore's daughter is a fun, fast read, anchored by likable heroine Samantha Joyce, who spends her days toiling as domestic policy adviser to the noble Ohio senator Robert Gary, while neurotically carving out a social and romantic life. Just 26 and amazed that she's the senator's go-to girl on health policy, Samantha thinks she's gotten another lucky break when she meets Aaron Driver, speechwriter to Democratic presidential front-runner John Bramen. Aaron is "hot, and not just D.C. hot," and Samantha falls hard for him. Early on in their relationship, a Blackberry mishap she mistakenly sends a message featuring whipped cream and video cameras to a list of important Washington players gives Samantha her first taste of D.C. scandal, but it's soon eclipsed by politics and deception on a grand scale. As Gary goes up against backstabbing Bramen, eventually accepting the vice-presidential spot on Bramen's rival's ticket, Samantha learns of Aaron's epic infidelities. Samantha's whimsical asides and long-winded explication of political matters give the novel an awkward bulkiness, but her self-deprecating sense of humor and idealism will keep readers entertained.
